Conway Twitty was good the first two times they did it in the series, but the latest one was just too damn much. Who needs 4 whole minutes of it?

All shows eventually run out of material.

Robin Williams said, "When all else fails, go for the d*ck joke."

The problem is that people get tired of non-stop d*ck jokes.

Family Guy is running out of ideas. Simpsons had a similar dry spell, but I think they got past it...and they aren't focusing on cranking out episodes faster than they can make new material.

American Dad was funny at first, but now that that the Democrats are in power, a lot of the humor of the show has had to shift, and it's just not working like it did when the Republicans were in office (most of the show was based on pop culture and political humor).

I think that family guy is still a great show and I watch it all the time. I like the simpsons but I prefer family guy because I like how they don't care what they joke about. I agree though that the jokes might go slightly too far sometimes but it's still funny. I don't like how lately they've changed the character Stewie into a gay joke. It was amusing watching him fail miserably at killing his mother all the time. :twisted: :lol:

I agree. Exactly my point. This is the response I want. It is refreshing knowing I am not the only one who has the same strong feelings about Stewie's personality switch.

Stewie is no longer evil? More interested in being gay than killing his mother and achieving world domination? 8O

I'm glad I haven't seen it in a year or two.

Family guy was always great. Filler jokes like conway twitty make me laugh from just pure randomness. Repeatin jokes (for example, when peter falls over. "ssssss. aaaaaahhh. sssssss.aaaaahhhh.) Completely random jokes entertain, and so do the mean jokes. The episode where (Stopppin spoilers) ****** K*lls l***, and stewie calls brian a dick. The fact that he's gay i find is much more entertain then bein an evil genius, because as a genius, he made little time for jokes, just continuin plots, and was never funny.

More Gross humor and less witty punchlines like they used to have.

Seth MacFarlane is a pretentious douchebag and his movies and tv shows all SUCK! Especially Family Guy!

This thread was started ten years ago. You last three posters are replying to posts made ten years ago.

Funny thing is that they were talking about a series going down hill after a long run ...ten years ago...and the show is still on the air!
